i want to connect the access point on the WAN interface.

the LAN interface on the wired LAN.

Protect means a closed network the wireless user have to connect with IPSEC 
on  an second Firewall.

SSID Broadcast off WEP off.

I have old clients without WPA

The way Wireless Client > Access Point >      Firewall 1       >Switch 
 >Firewall 2 > VLAN 1

                                                              not visible 
Firewall                    IPSEC Endpoint

its only an example.

A Other way is  Wireless Client > Access Point > Switch - VLAN 4 > 
Firewall  > VLAN 1

                                !!!Visible Firewall and IPSEC Endpoint!!!!
